As someone who writes about fashion on a near-daily basis, I'm constantly scouring the web for newsworthy deals. With most days now lingering near cooler temps and with summer on the horizon, I'm looking high and low for transitional pieces right now. Think breezy linen pants, light jackets, and versatile tops. Well, I'm excited to say that I've found all of these pieces and (much) more at Nordstrom's Spring Sale.
To make way for the new season and for a fresh batch of closet newness, Nordstrom is having a massive sale from now until April 9 with discounts of up to 60 percent off best-selling brands. Everything from summer dresses and shoes to classic button-down shirts and denim shorts is on steep discount. Not only that, but you can also score jewelry, sunglasses, and handbags on sale, too.
This sale is truly a big one—as in over 14,000 discounted pieces big. But don't worry, I did all of the heavy lifting for you. Ahead, I've rounded up the best spring-to-summer pieces from every major category that are worth adding to your closet. You may want to hurry, though. Pieces were literally selling out as I wrote this story.
Shop On-Sale Tops
While I don't think you need a reason to add another button-up shirt to your closet, in case you do, this one is 40 percent off and features a gorgeous color. The kelly green shade is the perfect spring update for your go-to white shirt and it's so easy to style. Pair it with a ribbed tank and trousers and you're good to go.
Come springtime, I always have my eye on on-sale coats and jackets and after spotting this one, I've never clicked "add to cart" so fast. The racer style fits right into the motocross trend the fashion set has been loving as of late, but it's still classic enough to wear for years to come. I will absolutely be throwing this over all of my dresses during the spring.
If you're tired of the same old button-ups in your closet, switch it up with this Free People blouse. The cinched-in waist and side ties make this piece cooler than all of your other shirts. With the longer cut, this would look so chic with a pair of stirrup leggings and ballet flats.
You might think this is a run-of-the-mill sweatshirt, but let me assure you it's much more. The swoosh detail, curved hem, and oversized fit make this Nike pick much cooler than your average sweatshirt. Throw on the matching pair of black joggers (which are also on sale, btw) and chunky hoops and you've got yourself an elevated loungewear outfit.
Shop On-Sale Bottoms
It's not every day great leggings like these go on sale, and from Nike no less. These are made from that kind of Dri-FIT sweat-wicking material Nike is known for, so dare to wear these on your most intense workouts. They're also soft and smooth like butter, making them great for lounging, too.
One of 2023's hottest denim trends is flare jeans, so I couldn't be happier to snag a pair on sale. Just like MC's Style Director Sarah Holzman suggests, I'll be wearing mine with pointed-toe heels (like the Franco Sarto pair, below) to elevate them for the office, then throwing on sneakers for the weekend.
You're not fully summer-ready unless you have a pair of denim cutoffs. Whether it be a festival, beach day, or happy hour, these Levi's shorts will suit any summer event you have on your agenda. Plus, your legs are going to look so long with their high-waisted fit and short shredded hems.
Levi's Ribcage jeans are an editor favorite for a reason. The extra high waist looks good on everyone and the classic straight style will never go out of style. One customer review says, "They fit like a glove. Stunning and a staple for all year long."
Yet another piece to add to your capsule wardrobe is this black midi skirt. From blouses, crop tops, and sweaters, this piece is so versatile. We promise you'll wear it time and time again, no matter the season.
I may have already included three Levi's pieces on this list, but these jeans were too good to not make the cut. This iconic style is inspired by vintage denim we all love. The Wedgie jeans feature a high waist designed to show off your curves, with butt-lifting powers and a slimmer leg than the Ribcage jeans above.
Shop On-Sale Dresses
This top-rated dress can be styled up and down in a pitch for any occasion. Heading into the office? Throw on a blazer and heeled sandals. Going to brunch with the girls? Add a pair of white sneakers and a bracelet or two. The opportunities are endless.
Everyone needs a basic LBD in their closets—sorry, I didn't make the rules. This dress is only $20 and when you figure out the cost per wear, it's an even better deal. Make this your ultimate layering piece with cool jackets and sandals, then in the winter time add tights, knee-high boots, and a coat.
Have you seen a more perfect dress for spring and summer? The wrap style flatters every body type, plus it can easily be dressed up or down with heels or sneakers. Somehow it's over 50 percent off and still in stock, but something tells us not for long.
Florals for spring? We absolutely approved, especially when it's a style as cute as this. I know you have at least one wedding on your agenda in the coming months and this dress makes for the perfect outfit. The wrap style and ruching detail is ultra flattering, plus the metallic pattern is so on trend.
Shop On-Sale Shoes
Nike has so many good picks on sale right now, but I was especially shocked to see these discounted. I wear this pair every single day for my workouts and I'm obsessed. They keep my feet comfortable and supported whether I'm running on the treadmill or lifting weights. Plus, they just look so cool on my feet.
Every single one of these shoes' 15 (!!!) different colorways are on sale, so go ahead and stock up. Reviewers are obsessed with how comfy these are. One even wrote, "I wore these for the first time in Las Vegas for 5+ hours on my feet. 0 blisters, feet never hurt once." Color us impressed.
Warm weather is nearly here, which means it's time to switch out your ankle boots with spring sandals. Not only do these slides come in on-trend metallic gold, but you have your pick from neutrals like black and off-white, plus fun lime green, pale blue, and coral. I plan on buying at least one if not two, pairs.
In case you didn't know, slingback heels make for an excellent summer shoe. This pair, in 2023's hottest color lavender, puts a little more polish on your go-to work heels. If purple is not your thing, there's also several shades of nude on sale to suit your fancy.
Everyone in the fashion crowd can't stop wearing ballet flats, myself included. These ones, though, get extra styling points for their pointed toe, mary jane strap, and polished hardware. A quality pair of shoes for under $100 doesn't come often, so be sure to add these to your cart ASAP.
White sneakers are a necessity come spring and it doesn't get much more classic than Adidas' Stan Smith sneaker. These chic white sneakers will go with everything in your closet, we promise. Over 3,000 Nordstrom shoppers rated these 5 stars so you know they're a winner.
Shop On-Sale Bags
Everyone needs a good tote bag in their life, and Béis has perfected one. While this tote is great for any moms-to-be, it also works wonders for travel thanks to its extra roomy interior and multiple pockets. It even has a slide pocket to use on your carry-on.
Tory Burch has so many good bags on sale right now, but this one in particular has me lusting after summer. Light brown leather paired with the woven detail means this little bag will go with all of my warm weather outfits. Throw on the chain strap to go hands-free or wear it as a clutch for all of your special occasions this season.
Uniquely-shaped handbags like this will instantly sort you into the fashion crowd. The twisted pretzel-like strap adds an element of coolness all of your outfits will benefit from. This bag is just asking for a moment on your Instagram feed.
In case you didn't know, COACH is in the middle of a resurgence, and this bag only further proves that. This lightweight bag isn't too big and isn't too small, and can fit all of your daily essentials with ease. The leather and straw design has me wanting to book a beach vacation ASAP so I can take this along.
In case you haven't noticed, the metallic trend is rocking the fashion set right now. Accessories like this bag are the easiest way to try out the trend for yourself. Invest in this bag now and we bet you'll be wearing it for years to come.
Shop On-Sale Accessories
Silver jewelry is trending hard and I don't see any signs of it slowing down. Nail the trend in one fell swoop with this triple strand necklace. Layered necklaces like this take all of the work out of mixing different strands together, which is why I'll be adding this pick to my cart.
Huggies are my go-to earring choice, so when I saw these cutesy earrings, I stopped my scrolling. This dainty little pair works perfectly;y in my second ear piercing along with my other hoops. The problem is, though, that I can't decide on which color to get—pink and gold or silver or silver and amethyst.
Ray-Ban sets the standard for quality sunglasses and thankfully there are a ton of on-sale options. This style, though, I've all across TikTok and I have yet to see it look bad on someone. These geometric sunnies truly look great on everyone, plus they are polarized!
Lately, I've been trying to collect more rings in my jewelry collection because the girls that get it, get it. I'm obsessed with how some people can effortlessly stack rings for that cool-girl vibe and with this set, I'm one step closer to achieving it for myself.
In my humble opinion, you can never have too many pairs of gold hoops—they simple go with everything in your closet. This pair from Stone and Strand has a twisted design to stand out from the rest in your collection, not to mention they are made from 10k gold so they will last a lifetime. A worthy investment piece if I've seen one.
